Elan 5400 – 1-4 Loop

A 1 to 4 loop analogue addressable control panel suitable for Apollo (XP95 & Discovery) and Hochiki (ESP) protocol devices. All Elan panels have been designed to be flexible and powerful with an intuitive user interface. Each panel has a high resolution LCD display with a high tactile feedback membrane keypad. Elan panels boast an extensive range of peripherals including; input/output modules, printers, key switches and remote terminals.

Product Overview

The HS-5400 series of control panels are fully expandable from 1 to 4 loops and supplied with  4 on-board sounder circuits, 20 programmable zonal LED’s with slide-in labels, and 25 system LED’s for information purposes. There are also 4 programmable function buttons with LED indication for confirmation of operation.

The control panel consists of the latest dual flash-based microprocessor technology combined with a high resolution / high contrast graphical LCD display and tactile keypad providing a simple ‘Select & Click’ programming aid for engineer configuration and end-user operation.

Powerful cause and effect programming coupled with ‘DynamiX’ zoning, and enhanced ‘Trace Diagnostics’ makes the panel suitable for a wide range of site applications from small to large complex multi-area systems. Fully programmable on-site via the on-board alphanumeric keypad, or PC-NeT configuration software.

An extensive suite of user-friendly Windows based PC software programs have been developed to enhance your experience when using the Elan series of fire panels. The suite incorporates a number of different programmes to include a Configuration, Service, Logo and Virtual Panel Tool to allow the flexibility of the equipment to be fully explored.

Simply adding a network card allows the panel to communicate with any other Elan fire panel, current range of Advanced Electronics fire panels, Remote Terminal, or Network Peripheral, such as, ‘ipGateway™’ or BMS/Graphical Interface. The network operates as a true peer-to-peer system and can be configured in a fault-tolerant loop or radial format.
